Two charged with Sioux Falls kidnapping

SIOUX FALLS (AP) — Police say a Sioux Falls couple attacked a woman at a mobile home park and kidnapped her by putting her in the backseat of an SUV after she blacked out.

Thirty-two-year-old Robert Wise, of Crooks, and 30-year-old Heather McBeth, of Sioux Falls, are charged with aggravated assault and kidnapping.

The incident happened Monday morning. The victim told police the pair strangled her until she was unconscious and she eventually woke up in the back of an SUV. Authorities say a witness gave police a description of the vehicle and a license plate number and the two suspects were pulled over after a brief chase.

The 30-year-old victim received medical treatment for scratches and bruises.
